Ohio Select Yearling Sale is ‘Sea-sational’

Friday, September 17, 2021 – by Chris Tully, for the Ohio Harness Horse Breeders

CIRCLEVILLE, OH. – The Ohio Selected Jug Yearling Sale enjoyed an 11% increase in overall average and a similar 11% increase in gross sales from last year’s record breaking auction, for the same number of horses sold.

For 273 yearlings auctioned, the gross sales were $7,538,00 for an average of $27,612 per Standardbred yearling.

Held on Friday, September 17 at the beautiful Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center in Circleville, Ohio, all the top Buckeye owners and trainers were on hand, or bidding electronically, to take advantage of the lucrative Ohio Sire Stakes program.

Buoyed by Diamond Creek’s pacing sire Downbytheseaside, who was a dominant force on the racetrack this season, the son of Somebeachsomewhere also lit up the bid board throughout the day.

A record price of $200,000 for a yearling sold in the state of Ohio was set by Hip # 139, Elusive Beauty, who was a Downbytheseaside half-sister to 2020 Little Brown Jug winner Captain Barbossa p,4,1:47.1-’21 ($561,120).  Purchased by Dana Parham’s Odds On Racing, Boca Raton, FL, she was bred, consigned and sold by Steiner Stock Farm, Lima, OH.

Steiner Stock Farms manager Al Manke holds Elusive Beauty who topped the sale at $200,000.

Joe McClead, who stands the stallion Downbytheseaside at his Delaware, Ohio nursery Sugar Valley Farms, stated, “All the cards were right, not only for the sale topper, but to bring a horse like this into Ohio, and have the confidence of the breeders, is a great testament to the program.”

Sons and daughters of Downbytheseaside dominated the sales ring today, fetching an average price of $53,674 for gross sales of $2.3 million with 43 individuals sold.

“It’s a great thing for Ohio and it’s a lot of fun to be a part of it,” McLead concluded.  “But it’s not just Downbytheseaside, there is a lot of excitement everywhere.  You have got to be a part of it.  It’s not easy to make a living in this business.  But, in Ohio you have more opportunity, and that is what makes it the Great State of Ohio!”

The highest priced trotting yearling sold was Hip# 126, Rose Run Yorick, a gorgeous What The Hill colt from a full sister to Crazed 3,1:52.2 ($1,063,059), which was hammered down to Hatfield Stables, Columbus, Ohio for $160,000.  Bred, consigned and sold by Rose Run Farm, it was the first time that nursery had broken the six-figure mark.

Rose Run Yorick brought $160,000, the highest priced trotting yearling ever sold in the state of Ohio.

“As a young man I went to an auction and I saw them sell a yearling for $100,000, and I said, ‘that’s what I want to do.’  I kept working, and kept working and it finally came true,” recalled Rose Run Farm manager Archie Yoder.

“I have been trying to do this for thirty years.  We finally had the right horse on the right day…he was a beautiful horse, and stood well.  They looked him over, he was perfect and ultimately two people wanted him.  Then, it’s hard to tell where they may end up at.”

The top average of trotting sires with seven or more entered was Creatine that accounted for 9 sold and an average of $32,222.  Next was Midland Acres’ Long Tom who presented 29 yearlings for an average of $27,034.  Uncle Peter and What The Hill from Hickory Lane Farm had 14 for $25,429 and 49 for $23,571, respectively.

Dublin Valley Farms’ first crop sire Enterprise, a son of Chapter Seven, had a solid first day, with 23 sold for an average of $23,304, including two sold for around $50,000.

On the pacing side, with 7 or more sold: McArdle (7/$22,571); Yankee Cruiser (10/$20,800); Racing Hill (8/$19,875); Fear The Dragon (42/$17,500); Well Said (8/$15,875) & Pet Rock (7/$10,000).

Ohio Jug Sale Up 17.4 %

Ohio Select Jug Sale Up 17 percent

Saturday, September 19, 2020 – by Chris Tully, for the Ohio Harness Horse Breeders

Circleville, OH – Standardbreds by highly sought-after first crop sires, coupled with a considerable increase in auction attendance, resulted in Friday’s (Sept. 18) Ohio Selected Jug Sale enjoying a 17.4 percent increase in average over last year’s figures.

A total of 272 Ohio-bred yearlings passed through the sales ring at the Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center in Circleville, Ohio for a sales gross of $6,709,000 resulting in an average price per yearling of $24,665.

Prices were strong throughout the day as the median of $20,000 gained $3,000 from 2019.  In addition to the strength and secure opportunities inherent in the Buckeye state harness racing program, a handful of first-crop sires significantly bolstered the coffers of the premier sale’s flagship consignors.

As they have done for six years in a row, Jeff and Senena Esty’s Spring Haven Farm sold the sale topper.  Hip# 175, SPRINGBRIDGE DRAGN was hammered down to Burke Racing of Fredericktown, PA for $120,000. 

From Stonebridge Damsel p,1:53.2h ($206,000), the half-brother to Springbridge Duel p,2,1:51.3-’20 ($92,000) was by Midland Acres’ sire Fear The Dragon.  Also the co-breeder, Senena Esty was ecstatic following the sale.

“Our job is our hobby.  It’s our life…it’s our love.  We bred this colt with our partners from Ontario, Dr. Cal Stiller and his wife Angie, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”

Also one of the biggest consignors at the sale, Spring Haven sold over 50 horses for a gross of $1.286 million.

Esty added, “The success of this sale is shared across the board.  These are our friends…and our family.  The Ohio breeders are a close knit group.  Many of the consignors that sold here today under their own banner, they also send horses with Spring Haven to sell in Lexington.  We all root for each other.”

Through much of the first half of the sale, the buzz was all about pacing yearlings sired by Downbytheseaside.  Boasting an average over $40,000 for 37 sold ($44,833 for 24 colts), the son of Somebeachsomewhere had three colts bring $100,000 each.

The first to break the six figure mark was Hip# 78, SEASIDE TEA TEA, when he was bought by Brian Brown for a cool $100,000.  The first colt from the Western Hanover mare Tea Pot Hanover p,3,1:52.3f ($188,000), he was consigned by Albert and Mark Adams’ Winterwood Farm, Agent.

Diamond Creek Farm, who manages the stallion career of Downbytheseaside, but stands him in at Sugar Valley Farm, Delaware, Ohio, consigned Hip#102, MOSCOW MITCH, the first foal from WICKED INTENTIONS p,4,1:53.1f ($221,000), she from a half-sister to MYSTICAL MADDY p,4,1:50 ($1.4 million).  Greg Luther, Reynoldburg, Ohio signed the ticket.

Prominent breeder and racehorse owner Adam Bowden was quick to confirm his stallion’s place in the hierarchy.

“This is the type of sale we thought that Downbytheseaside would have.  They look the part and I think that people in Ohio, and outside of Ohio, are looking for this kind of horse.  I don’t think you can consider him a regional horse at this point.”

In addition, Hip# 103, FIRE BY THE SEA sold for $100,000 by Spring Haven Farm, Agent, for Enos Weaver, and was purchased by Brian Brown, Agent, Ostrander, Ohio. 

The big numbers began with Ohio Standardbred breeding stalwart Midland Acres, who teamed up with Hanover Shoe Farms for this auction and sold Hip# 57, SEASIDE HANOVER, a Downbytheseaside half brother to The Little Brown Jug heat winner WESTERN FAME p,1:48.1f ($1,747,000) for $90,000 to Peter Wrenn, Agent, Carmel, IN.

Midland Acres also enjoyed success with two first crop sires: Fear The Dragon, with 33 sold that averaged $26,700 ($32,800 for 15 colts); and Long Tom, the son of Muscle Hill that had 17 go through the ring for an average of $24,000 ($27,750 for 10 colts).

Midland Acres also sold the most horses (64) of any consignor, for a gross of $1.4 million, which included a dozen for Hanover Shoe Farms.

The highest priced trotter of the day was a colt by Long Tom that sold for $80,000 to Dennis Owens, Hamilton, OH.  Hip# 198, BAMBOO, was consigned by Anvil and Lace Farm, Agent, for Walstan Farm.

Another trotter with a great first showing was Hickory Lane’s What The Hill, whose 44 colts and fillies averaged $26,693, the highest of any trotter in the sale with more than three offered.

“From beginning to end it was just a very solid sale…all the way through the catalog.  We were up nearly 20 percent and it truly shows the steady growth we have had over the last five or six years,” stated Kevin Greenfield of Hickory Lane Horse Farm. 

“The enthusiasm was off the charts.  I have never seen a crowd as big as we have had in Ohio this year.”

Ohio Harness Horse Breeders president Randy Haines of Cool Winds Farm agreed.

“The buyers clearly wanted the product we had to offer.  The first crop stallions were extremely well-received.  Ohio is a great place to race.  The buyers were here in full force, and they showed that they were ready to pay good money for our product.”

Ohio Jug Sale Enjoys Robust Show Day

by Chris Tully, for the Ohio Harness Horse Breeders

Circleville, OH – Hundreds of Harness Horse owners and trainers descended upon the Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center in Circleville, Ohio on Thursday to inspect over 270 yearlings being offered in tomorrow’s (Sept. 18) Ohio Selected Jug Sale.

Highlighted by five popular first crop sires, several with Big League credentials, inspections were heavy throughout the day and all with social distancing and protocols being followed.

Making up nearly half the sale, first crop sires Downbytheseaside, Fear The Dragon, Long Tom, Lost For Words and What The Hill were clearly high on everybody’s inspection list.

The connections of 2017 Dan Patch 3-year-old pacing colt champion Downbytheseaside, Diamond Creek Farm’s Adam Bowden and Sugar Valley Farms’s Joe McLead, were quick to praise their stallion’s progeny. 

“One thing that people liked about Somebeachsomewhere, other than his racetrack prowess, is that all his foals look the same.  You knew exactly what you were getting.  Now you are seeing that with Downbytheseaside …every horse that comes out, they are built in the same mold!”

“It would be shocking to me if they are not extremely successful here…inside and outside of the state of Ohio.”

Brian Brown, trainer of both Fear The Dragon and Downbytheseaside had a very busy day, as the Delaware, Ohio-based conditioner looked at all 60 of the yearlings by his two star pupils.

“Like any other sires, there are some individuals that I like better than others, but as a group they are some very nice yearlings.”

Jake Mossbarger of Midland Acres agreed.  “We have had great traffic throughout the day and are very happy with the compliments we have received on the Fear The Dragon yearlings.  They have great conformation and we are excited to sell them, along with our well-received group of Long Tom foals.”

“In addition, we are thrilled to have been asked to represent Hanover Shoe Farms at this sale.  We are extremely pleased that we are entrusted with their yearlings, which are also an outstanding group.”

On the trotting side, 2017 Dan Patch 3-year-old trotting colt champion What The Hill’s 47 yearlings got the early attention of top trainers Ron Burke and Chris Beaver, who were looking at the son of Muscle Hill’s colts and fillies first thing this morning.

“Everybody that races regularly in Ohio have been here to look at the What The Hill’s,” noted Hickory Lane Horse Farm owner Kevin Greenfield.

“There has been a lot of interest in him.  I see no issues from an economic standpoint as everyone in the Buckeye State has been racing for all the money they are supposed to.  The money is all there, people can bid with confidence.”

Ohio Harness Horse Breeders president and Cool Winds Farm owner Randy Haines was also optimistic.  “Everybody is racing for a lot of money.  As I have said before, I believe the Ohio program is the best in the country.  The other yearling sales have been strong, so I am confident we will have a good sale as well.”

Tomorrow’s auction begins at 10 a.m. with 278 cataloged, and all social distancing and covid courtesies, including mask-wearing being practiced inside the barns and sale area.

Positive changes for Ohio Jug Sale

Big changes are in store for this year’s Ohio Selected Jug Yearling Sale.  And for both consignors and buyers, they’re all to the good.

Topping the list is a new location for this year’s sale.  It is now to be held at the Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center in Circleville, OH on Friday, Sept. 18, with the traditional Yearling Show Day scheduled the day prior.

Also new this year is “live” online bidding, coordinated in real time with each horse that steps into the ring the day of the sale.  Those bidding online will be competing simultaneously with buyers at the sale.

“We’re delighted to be selling now at the Pickaway Ag and Event Center,” said sale manager Randy Manges.”It’s a beautiful new facility that’s first class all the way.  The horses are all housed under roof in separate stable areas, yet it’s an open air facility -perfect for the times we’re in.

“All the usual COVID-19 precautions – sanitizing, social distancing and masks – will be in place for the sale, and the layout of the barns and the size of the sale arena itself help us meet those requirements.  But for those who prefer to bid online we now have a state-of-the-art setup for that as well.”

Manges said the Wendt Group, headquartered in Plain City, OH, is strategically partnering with the sales company and Danny Green’s auction team to set up and facilitate the simultaneous online bidding process.  The Wendt Group is considered a pioneer in online livestock sales and has conducted 6,000 live and 5,500 internet auctions.

Those desiring to bid online will be required to pre-register with the Wendt Group, so there is adequate time for the necessary approval.  Specifics for signup will be available later, both in the sale catalog and in future announcements.

“Ohio was the first state to race when COVID-19 restrictions were eased, and all eyes will be on us as we’ll be among the first to conduct a yearling sale,” Manges said.  “The new sale facility, coupled with online bidding, makes us feel we’re offering the best possible experience to all of our current and potential customers.”



Ohio Select Sale maintains robust bidding and buying

Saturday, September 14, 2019 – by Chris Tully, for the Ohio Harness Horse Breeders

Johnstown, OH – A capacity crowd filled the sales arena at the Brave Horse Show Park to select and purchase 243 Ohio-bred yearlings for a gross of $4,953,000 producing an average sale price of $20,383.  Sunny skies and a pleasant breeze allowed consignors to showcase their trotters and pacers to an eager group at the 2019 Ohio Selected Jug Yearling Sale that recognizes the strength and excellent opportunities inherent in the Buckeye state’s harness racing program.

Once again, Jeff and Senena Esty’s Spring Haven Farm sold the sale topper.  Hip 105, Lightning Rocks, was a gorgeous Pet Rock half-brother to Love Me Some Lou p,2,1:50.4f ($216,452) that was hammered down to Burke Racing of Fredericktown, PA for $100,000.

2019 Sale Topper, $100,000 Hip 105, Lightning Rocks – Consigned by Spring Haven Farms

“He is a fabulous colt, very well-bred with impeccable conformation,” noted Senena Esty following the auction.

A pacing filly by McArdle topped that division with an $84,000 purchase price. Cory Deyermand of Dorset, OH was the successful bidder of Hip 63, Rose Run Wasaki, a half-sister to Rose Run Uptowngal p,3,1:51.3f-’19 ($193,949). 

Consignor Archie Yoder of Rose Run Farm stated, “Buyers were willing to pay top dollar for good horses, and I am really excited for the people that bought them.”

Ohio Harness Horse Breeders president Randy Haines echoed those remarks and was very pleased with Ohio benchmark event, “If you had what the buyers wanted, they were here to buy.”

Three fillies and a colt all shared top billing for the highest priced trotters in the sale as they all fetched $60,000 respectively.  The highest priced colt was Hip 85, Declared Lawful, a Full Count half-brother to Lawmaker 3,1:53.3 ($328,115) consigned by Marvin Raber Farm and purchased by Miles Woolam of Brookfield, OH.  Full Count sired five yearlings in the sale which averaged $44,400.

Two fillies from the third crop of Uncle Peter also brought $60,000: Hip 135, Miss Meringue was consigned by Mitch and Laura Nault’s LMN Bred Stables, Inc. and purchased by Anthony MacDonald’s The Stable.ca, Guelph, Ontario, Canada; and Hip 207, Aunt Lil, consigned by Double Spring Farm, Agent and taken home by Burke Racing.  Uncle Peter had 36 yearlings represented in the sale and averaged just shy of $20,000.

Yearlings from the first crop of Racing Hill were also well received and brought some new faces to the sale as his trainer Tony Alagna was on hand to inspect and ultimately purchase one of the Ohio-bred pacers. 

All told, 35 youngsters by the Breeders Crown winner averaged $24,143, with the highest priced colt being purchased by Brian Brown of Ostranger, OH for $54,000.  Hip 94, Roczen, was just the second foal from the good racemare Rockratese p,4,1:52.1f ($217,733) and was consigned by Hickory Lane Farm, home of Racing Hill.

Kevin Greenfield, owner of Hickory Lane Farm opined, “You never know how first crop sires will produce, but overall the way people bid on them told me that they wanted them and hope that they succeed.”

Established Ohio sire Yankee Cruiser topped the average for pacers with 11 offerings at $32,727 per horse.  Midland Acres president Dr. John Mossbarger, who stands the horse and had 45 yearlings sold at the sale, stated, ”We thought we had a very good sale.  It was a very solid sale with a lot of active bidding. We were very pleased with our whole consignment, led in part by the strength of the Pet Rock and Yankee Cruiser yearlings.  We are very thankful to all of the bidders and buyers that helped us have another successful auction.”
